    Hah, true. Guess I can't argue with that

I wonder why some scientist hasn't said this. Oh, wait...
    There are no stupid questions.

    Only stupid people who ask questions.

    No, I am describing an unique individual as an organisim whose uncompromised basic biological functions operate without external support. There's a difference.

    That is not accurate. That is simply denier parsing of climate change/Global warming. It hasn't stopped if you look at real reports after the deniers bastardized the original report.

    From my perspective, climate change and MAN MADE global warming are two separate topics. I think the existence of climate change is accepted by most people. There has been climate change since the earth has existed. Until we can control sun spot, volcanic activity and other natural factors, there will be climate change. Many accept that there may be some warming, the question is to what extent it is impacted by human activity and if that level of activity mandates the immediate lifestyle changes that some are demanding. I don't know that many oppose the continued effort to develop alternative energy sources, but to the extend that we do not fully access our current energy resources during that effort. Plus it didn't help when it was found that many of those pushing the man made agenda were found to have cooked the books so to speak.

    If you take a pot of water and turn the heat on, the water, which was moving slowly around in the pot, is going to move more energetically. That's what heat is. It's just energy. We're trapping energy in our "pot of water", which is all the atmosphere really is. As it gets warmer, it moves around more energetically. But it is most definitely getting warmer, overall, as you say. That's the whole point.

    Changing it from global warming was entirely unnecessary. It was done to try to clarify things for people who seemed to be having a hard time understanding how global warming was actually going to play out (not just everything getting noticeably hotter all the time, everywhere). Instead, people who willfully deny it because it doesn't suit their economics, and their adherents, took it as an indication that something about it had changed, that it was therefore a weak premise.

    This is why the Enlightenment was such a victory for humanity. For a time, to a degree, at least, people actually understood the power and the value of honest critical thinking. Look what was accomplished!

    Now? Back to the Dark Ages we go. It's so ODD, isn't it? I never would have thought it possible, but I guess I was young and naive.

    No they don't. An infant needs an outside host for it's digestive system to work? A toddler needs an outside source to chew its food? A teenager needs someone else to cause it to swallow? An infant needs an outside force to break down food into its nutrients? A toddler needs an outside force to move those nutrients throughout the body? Actual independent organisms' basic biological functions operate without outside assistance, so long as those systems are not compromised by disease, or age.

    So, if a fetus is an individual organism, then we simply remove it from the womb, and allow medical professionals to provide what care they can until it is mature enough to leave the hospital, and enter into the state foster system.

    We both know that the result will be the same as abortion, but hey, at least your conscience will be soothed. We are no longer performing abortions - they are pre-natal parental separations. Then it's all up to God if the fetus survives, or not.

    Or...

    You can just choose to be rational, and stop bitching about other people doing what they want with their own damn bodies.
